though with steak, drink, and cigars, we're soon labelled corporate fat cats of the Brandon cabal. You'll have to learn to love uniformz (except there weren't any this year)
|1 day 1 hour ago||Brandon||
He scheduled a game in 2017 that most of the fan base is going to be excited about. I certainly am. But that's it. That's the extent of this news.
Home-and-home is preferred, sure. Other people have to agree to those things.

and unacceptables, your complaining... they've been invaluable and are already turning the program. what would we do without you, pisser of excellence?

we take the two he got from last year and one from thus and call it good.

Sam has talked about that in the past - it's a normal part of the process for AD's to meet with recruits.

which referenced Dantonio's candidacy. Look at this young man. 16 years is a long time, and anyone would age in that period, but it seems like Mack had that presidential accelerator thing going in his time at Texas

that they have another QB recruit in the class. I know QB's look at depth charts more than probably any other position, and Cook is obviously more entrenched than a fellow freshman QB, but that still seems like it would be very disappointing for Sparty fans.
12-1 season and a Rose Bowl, you don't expect to have decommits in that environment - in fact I think that you'd expect to close on remaining commits. Didn't they lose that Slade kid about a week ago to Nebraska?
|3 days 1 hour ago||The article notes||
that more of the interview will be available on GoBlueWolverine.com later today, so it's possible he did ask that question. I'd also be very curious as to the answer.

told a story on WTKA this morning, there was an upper classman from Youngstown (forget his name) when Woodson was a true freshman, and the guy said he'd win the Heisman. This was before he'd ever taken any offensive snaps or even played much. He was that good, that much better than everyone else. Would be nice to have that type of talent in AA again.

but that political bias is being transferred to blog-appropriate memes is pretty clear, at least to my mind. The venom and fervor with which even mild decisions are met with outrage is very reminiscent of that arena.
It appears you have a few advocates and I detractors in this thread. Perhaps like you, they disagree with my argument. Perhaps they dislike being outed. Such is the nature of opinions.
|1 week 21 hours ago||M-Wolverine||
Your real challenge. You can't be Matt Damon in that one lawyer movie that was OK but kind of sucked without representing M-Wolverine. If you need points, I will use mine as collateral.
He started most of the game threads. He argued with many, but always had a logical reason for doing so. He made me and others think about different points of view. His great failure was constantly countering Brian in his despair of this lost season. I would bet even the mods have some sympathy for this trial.
The rest will be freed eventually. The case of M-Wolverine allows you to bring a poster back from the dead.
|1 week 21 hours ago||even if true, and I wouldn't||
even if true, and I wouldn't concede many or the majoritiy of detractors feel that way, it wouldn't necessarily refute my argument. Just as likely that they'd rather he go be that away from their university (i.e. better in public office than so close to home).
And re. your preferences, fair enough, but I did say 60% and not 100%.
|1 week 23 hours ago||Bain continues||
to be code for republican/Romney in many corners, and therefor evil. Some of that persuasion believe they can mention Bain w/out any context, and evil is assumed.
I believe ~60% of dislike for Brandon is politically motivated, but detractors don't have the gumption to admit that. And on this blog, you're not really allowed to. So it comes out as "BRANDON KILLS BABIES FOR NICKELS AND CHILDREN FOR DIMES!!"

due to players. Bullough is as good (at least for the B1G) as they've ever had there, as is Dennard. Denicos Allen should get killed at his size, instead he's a special player. Lewis is a good safety. They'll still be good on D, but not quite the powerhouse they've been. I made the same argument last year and was wrong, but I won't be next. And for the love of pete, B1G OC's need to scheme a way to beat that D.
|1 week 3 days ago||why do the metro suburbs||
not produce any talent? Private/Catholic schools yes, but generally not the public schools. I see Ohio kids come from their suburban districts all the time, not MI. Rochester, Troy, Sterling Hts, Novi, Canton, Farmington, Livonia, etc., these are large districts with good programs that nonetheless rarely put out D1 kids. And what's with Pontiac? Have they put out anyone of note in years?

Sirius college football station morning guy, and someone I think has good sense, would absolutely agree with you. Says the good Christian man thing is not an act. Whereas he won't say that about others, like Kiffin, Petrino, and the ASU coach, who he says many people in the industry openly despise.
He does call Richt "the energy vampire" though, sucking life out of his team with lack of emotion. Says at UGA you should have the talent to compete for championships nearly every year. FWIW
|1 week 6 days ago||probably be banned for this||
If I'm not already. But M-Wolverine wasn't a good poster because of duration, he was a good poster because he gave valid, well-reasoned points. I'm actually shocked that you disliked him so. This new regime will likely soon walk over the line between banning trolls and quashing most dissent. Probably already has. From the posts of Seth, Ace, BISB, and justingoblue, it doesn't seem as if they feel as much need to ban as you do. And did you really just suggest that people rid themselves of their avatar, so as to avoid being noticed and punished? That's fairly preposterous.
I learned a long time ago that the world would be a boring place if everyone were just like me, and thought the way I did. Healthy debate, that yes sometimes turns heated, is often the only way to resolve differences. It helps grow the community. Banning people who say things you may not like (as opposed to trolls, who should be banned) isn't a way to improve a community, because sometimes these are things we need to hear. Forcibly quieting those voices - when they're presented with reason - inevitably does more harm than good.

|2 weeks 15 hours ago||fair point||
but few rules are absolute. McDowell is different from most recruits, at least in terms of how quiet he is about recruiting. May stand to reason he's different in other ways. Your rule may be valid, but probably at 80/20 rather than 100%
|2 weeks 15 hours ago||probably best to leave him alone. But it's not||
probably best to leave him alone. But it's not meaningful if there's no context - if he replies this way to all texts from recruiting analysts, it's not indicative of anything.
